Aussie With "Micro Penis" Mortgages Home To Pay For Bigger Organ
An Australian man identified as "Mike" is putting his home on the line to correct an all-around devastating but rare condition known as "micro penis." He's already poured $45,000 into a surgery that had promised to enlarge his penis and therefore soothe his psyche, but it came up short.
“My penis is basically infant-sized,” "Mike" told ninemsn. “Pre-surgery, I was two to three centimeters (1 inch) flaccid and I’m now four centimeters (1.5 inches). My erection is probably around seven centimeters (2.75 inches).”
“It has prevented me from doing or experiencing a lot of things. I haven’t experienced proper relationships. I found it difficult to talk to girls. I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 24 when I had a girlfriend for three months."
"Mike," who is otherwise obviously in great shape, says he suffers from intense depression and bouts with bipolar disorder due to his penis size. He hopes that two more surgeries totaling near $70,000 will help him.
As evidence that he's willing to do anything to move on to the next chapter in his life, "Mike" has even offered some of his brain power in exchange for a larger penis.
“I’d happily be less intelligent, lose a few IQ points and have a bigger penis,” he says.
